Creamy Baked Spinach Artichoke Pasta





I am a huge fan of warm spinach artichoke dip and that is exactly what this pasta tastes like. A warm creamy and cheesy pasta with spinach and artichokes. Baked to perfection. I love that it is low in calories and fat so I can indulge without all the guilt. It was a huge hit with the entire family!

Ingredients
12 oz pasta of your choice (I used Mezze Penne)
1 package frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 cup artichokes, quartered
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
1 cup reduced fat milk (I used skim)
1 1/4 cups reduced fat italian cheese blend, divided
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese


Cook pasta to al dente. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan whisk together milk and cream cheese until smooth. Season with salt and garlic powder. Slowly stir in the parmesan and half of the shredded italian cheese. Once melted add in the spinach and artichokes. 

In a lightly sprayed casserole dish pour mixture over pasta. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. 

Cook at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!
